Sold my Soul

I was told to watch my back

But I didn't listen.

Seduced by what I wanted to hear

It was something in the voice

in the words

In the eyes so gentle

I lost myself.

Things seem so good at the time.

I said to myself over and over

It's too good to be true.

And sure enough

when my back was turned

Out popped the devil, in disguise.

He had your voice

spoke your words

and had your eyes

so gentle.

Nothing could have prepared

me for this awful truth.

I was horrified yes

but I was also hurt

that I allowed myself

to be the fool.
